Custom State Love String Art Gift

I recently got to craft a gift that a friend ordered from me. Their neighbors moved away and she wanted to create this piece for their daughters since they were so close with her two daughters.

After sharing some of my hand-lettered decor that I made for our new home like this…

And some more art like this…

As well as the string art I made for our house.

She asked if I would be interested in combining the two arts on a piece of wood that we can then mod podge a photo of all 5 girls together to.

Of course!

I sanded and stained a piece of wood and then applied a light coat of polyurethane to add an even sheen to it since we would be using mod podge later.

Then, I roughed my layout of the the lettering, states, and photo. It was a lot to put on a 12″x14″ piece of wood!

Once that was all figured out I completed the lettering with a paint pen and then began the nail art.

Once that was all finished we decided to add a loop to connect the hearts.

Here it is! (Not with the final photo though)

I hope this family enjoys this gift as much as I enjoyed turning my friend’s idea into a piece of art.

Do you have any string art hanging in your home? Leave me a comment!
